Since 2007, EUPOL Afghanistan has unique expertise in civilian policing and has conducted numerous specialist training programs. Several thousands of Afghan police officers have been trained in basic criminal investigation techniques as well as at the level of leadership and management. Also, several hundreds of inspectors, within the Ministry of Interior, have been educated in basic anti-corruption investigation techniques. The broad range of trainings is conducted in training centres as at the Staff College, at the HQ of the Kabul City Police and in the "Ring of Steel", at the Headquarters of the Border Police and also at the International Airport Kabul, and at the Central Training Centre (CTC).
In order to cascade this training down the police ranks, EUPOL has developed the Train-the-Trainers concept. This empowers the Afghan Police Officers themselves to train their colleagues. In 2009, EUPOL launched the Kabul City Police Project in order to improve the policing standards in Kabul. This was the first time EUPOL has been directly involved at the district level. One of the results of this project has been the "Ring-of-Steel", created to improve the overall security of KABUL and efficiently condor off the capital if need arises.
